Crown Princess Victoria Visits Children’s Hospital
As patron of the Astrid Lindgren Children’s Hospital Foundation, Crown Princess Victoria today paid a visit to their hospital in Solna.
The visit was arranged to mark the merger of the Astrid Lindgren Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Hospital of Huddinge, into a joint paediatric centre operated under the administration of the Karolinska University Hospital.
The Princess, who is due in March with her first child, arrived just after 14:00, dressed all in black – an unsurprising colour choice, as much of Victoria’s maternity wardrobe has consisted of dark upon dark clothing, but one thing caught everyone’s eye – no tent dress! Wearing black pants, a fitted black top and black jacket with frilled detailing around the hems, Crown Princess Victoria’s baby bump was clear for all to see.
Touring the paediatric wing for approximately an hour, the Princess was shown various operations of the children’s hospital. During the visit, she was also given a onesie for her unborn child.
The Swedish media has used the visit to the hospital as a reason to speculate on where Princess Victoria will give birth. Karolinska University Hospital is the most obvious choice, they say, as it is a short distance from Haga Palace, where the Crown Princess Couple live, and is where Princess Victoria was herself born in July 1977. The Swedish royal court has yet to announce where the birth will take place, and most likely are not going to until the birth itself is announced.
